WASHINGTON — The Prince George’s County police are looking for a person of interest in the killing of a 29-year-old Maryland man shot along the Baltimore-Washington Parkway earlier this month.
Investigators released surveillance video from a convenience store on South Dakota Avenue in D.C., which was recorded about 15 minutes after the shooting that claimed James Edwards’ life.
Edwards, of New Carrollton, was shot during the evening rush hour May 9 on Annapolis Road, which investigators said is just off the BW Parkway. Since the shooting happened at 6:10 p.m. in broad daylight, police said, it is likely other drivers saw something.
Preliminarily, detectives do not believe it was a random act.
The video shows a young man wearing a white tank top and jeans walk into the store and up to the counter. The video clearly shows his face which is enhanced for viewers by police.
A $25,000 reward is being offered for a tip that leads to a conviction. Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Homicide Unit at 301-772-4925.
